A look back at Team Koobr’s Derby 10K for me&dee Charity

What a day it turned out to be!

Team Koobr joined the crowds at Pride Park this March for the Derby 10K, running in aid of an incredible cause for me&dee Charity.

Our trio, Craig, Chris and Andrea, donned their running gear not just to race and beat their personal bests, but to rally up support for me&dee, a charity that’s all about giving families facing tough times a chance to make lasting memories. And thanks to your incredible support, we raised a brilliant £400, contributing to overall £2,415 raised by the whole Team me&dee Derby 10K crew as of mid-April.  

Craig Barker, our founder, commented, “Participating in the Derby 10K for me&dee is always a highlight each year. It’s a great initiative to drum up support for an amazing cause. And crossing the finish line feels even better knowing we’re helping to make a difference. 

“We are honoured to have such a close partnership with me&dee, and it’s a privilege to work with a charity that does so much for the local community. We are excited to participate in the Derby 10K again, and hopefully, we can continue to help raise awareness for the me&dee team.” 

Looking back, the Derby 10K was a great experience, not just for the challenge, but for the sense of achievement and community spirit in supporting me&dee. Your contributions have helped ensure that this amazing charity can continue their vital work, offering moments of joy and respite for families facing their toughest times.  

So, a massive thank you to everyone who supported us – whether it be by cheering us on or donating to me&dee. Your generosity has made a true positive difference, and if you’ve been inspired to join us in supporting me&dee in any way, it’s never too late. Every little bit helps!
